sept21

Welcome to Sept 2021. As you may notice - the site has a new look. I’ve moved the site from Python Nikola to a Golang framework called Hugo, and have rewritten the script that creates the markdown template (including the images) in Go.

Here’s the artwork of the month.

carrot-vacum

I have been using Krita, and decided to paint over some of my older line works- this was a pepper and carrot work. A derivative of artwork originally by D.Revoy, CC-By.

handsup-landscape

Landscape with a few characters with their hands up.

Hills in a comic panel.

jenspup-rip-line

Jens, Doug and Pup died in DND, so I drew a tribute / memory of them. In a comic panel.

jenspup-rip

Grayscale paint overlay of the line of Jens, Doug and Pup. A comic panel.

peppercarrot-camp

Another paint over of a an older line work Pepper and Carrot. I really have been exploring some of the different brushes - I especially like the dot texture - it gives it a pop art look. Great for covering large areas of blank space.

undead-dnd

Drawing of a undead creature from DND, alongside a cart from the env.

It is May 2020 and time for another post. It’s been almost 2 months since I have left my Suburb. Tomorrow I am going for a trip into the city.

Here is some recent works

peppercarrot

Pepper And Carrot e32 line trace. I loved the landscapes in this strip, so decided to draw it. The tents were especially fun to draw - I’ve drawn similar in the past with the Spyro The Dragon painting. I added the logo from the top of these strip to the bottom of this panel.

xmas19

Merry Xmas. Another year is almost over. But here’s another post of artwork. I started a new job last week, which keeps me busy during the day. But in the evening I got home and felt like drawing. Which is great, as when I wasn’t working it was hard to motivate myself to draw most days. Alot of this artwork was created well watching the new season of Rick and Morty (which I have drawn characters from in the past) and the new Netflix show - The Witcher. I have The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch and own The Witcher 2 on PC Steam, but never really played the 2nd one.
